Leadership, Morality and Accountability

Two different perspectives on accountability
arrived on my screen recently, from two good friends, great colleagues and very keen thinkers. One perspective used accountability as a prime dimension of leadership, arguing becoming an effective leader requires accepting accountability for results well beyond one’s own level of comfort. The other perspective dealt with the proposition that corporations could be held morally accountable not because they have a soul, but because they have a culture and that culture should drive ethical behavior. It seems to me these two perspectives are very complementary.
